    sales from collectors and other artists. He’s also selling prints.

    13:00 ­ Andrew talks about his first art show at 19 years old. His father is a sculptor, and

    Andrew worked at a gallery, so he had a mentor to help him with his first show. Andrew talks

    the location.

    23:00 ­ if you were in any other business, you would be tracking inventory, hours worked, and
